11 Aug 2017 – Damascus Road

I had a dream
I had to share
so you would see –
and then you too would care.
Who’d guess a dream
we all adored
could tear us all
apart and start a war?

I was a fool,
head stuck in stars,
but now I know
we each wear diff’rent scars.
There is no song
we all can sing,
we never will
agree on everything.

If my success
means your disgrace
perhaps it’s time
I joined the human race.
We can’t be one,
but maybe we
can come to terms,
and try to live in peace?
